$99 for a Mini Boudoir Photo Shoot ($250 Value)
Mini boudoir sessions begin with an application of professional-grade makeup to make lips, lids, and lashes reach their fullest potential. Come in with home-styled hair or enlist hairstyling services and clip-in extensions for an additional fee. Once heads are camera-ready, hands dig through drawers full of costumes ranging in size from 0 to 22 and then complete outfits with jewelry, shoes, and props. After the shoot, clients will review the proofs in studio and choose their favorites.
Sugar and Spice Photography
Sugar and Spice owners Chelsey and Angela haven't forgotten the fear that consumed them when they first bared all in front of a foggy camera lens. This awareness is what makes them the ideal pair to helm a boudoir photography studio, which pairs its solo shoots with sessions incorporating couples, pinups, and pregnant subjects. By drawing from their past experience, all-female staff members work to ease subjects' fears as they highlight their best features, no matter what size, shape, or kind of droid they might be. Since the studio doesn't dabble in wedding shoots or children's photography, Sugar and Spice is able to pour all of its resources into its boudoir photography, which is reflected by its 20 different sets, more than 300 pairs of shoes, thigh-highs and stockings, and hundreds of outfits in sizes 0–26.
If clients start to get lost in piles of lingerie, the team has plenty of ideas and ready-made looks to choose from, such as the girl next door in jeans and a T-shirt or the more involved bikini-clad George Washington crossing the Delaware. Touting itself as the only stateside boudoir studio to offer complimentary clip-in hair extensions, Sugar and Spice also flaunts its beauty retouching services, which are included with every product.
